3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2009 great hop aroma. pours a reddish amber with a big offwhite head. lots of pine in the flavor and finish. the finish lasts forever. sort of thin bodied for an IPA but that’;s not so bad in my book. malty and chewy, lots of balance in this one while still having big hops. it’s missing something to make it truly special, but it is some good stuff.

(bottle) medium amber. small off white head with a little lace. Pine/grass hops aroma. Flavor is floral/pine hops countered by a significant malt backbone. Hops finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours an average cheddar orange with a nice head and lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and strawberry; the sweet offset takes away from the nose, in my opinion. Flavor of grapefruit, pine, and slight lemon/lime makes up for its aromatic shortcomings. Mouthfeel is a bit thin; I’d like a little more syrupy feel to it. Overall, a great IPA that’s worth a second glance.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a nice amber color with big head and good lacing. Aroma was very enjoyable, grapefruit and other citrus flavors (orange). Flavor was of orange and grapfruits some floral hops didn’t have the greatest malt backbone. Good but not amazing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2007 Pours a nice golden orange with a white, fluffy, mid-sized head that lingers for a while. Aroma is big on citrus and hops. Also evergreen and slight hay. Flavor starts with hay and moves to full on hops, though it’s not as bitter as I had expected. Finish is bitter, though. Mouth is smooth, maybe a little under-carbonated. A solid IPA, but not outstanding. I would have liked a more complex flavor.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an orangish-yellow color with an off-white head. Aroma is strong of citrus and pine hops with hints of some grassy tones. Starts off kind of flavorless with some of the grassy tones. Then citrus and pine hops kick in for a decent bitter finish but not what I was expecting from the aroma. Not very much carbonation on this brew as well. Decent but I like more from my IPA’s
